Tasting notes The color is bright, deep and clear ruby-red.  On the nose it is dense with strength and power.  Aromas are focused on the red fruit such as morello, blackberries and red cherry coupled with dried herbs, spicy aromas and a mineral touch.  On the mouth it has medium-plus body with an intriguing acidity and very qualitative tannins.  Flavors of red fruits, earth and minerals along with tobacco and spices are apparent.  The aftertaste is long and complicated with constant evaluation.
